With a goal of raising $2.5 billion for the University, the Campaign for NYU is the most exciting and ambitious fund-raising effort in the 175-year history of the University. NYU has risen swiftly to join the ranks of the top universities in the U.S. and the strength of our faculty, the quality of our schools, and the talents of our students have never been greater. Today we have the unique opportunity to secure our position and to climb even higher into the small circle that comprises the world's best universities.

To continue our dramatic rise, we must provide new resources to attract top faculty and students, and build visionary programs and state-of-the-art facilities. The Campaign provides us with the opportunity to do this without relying solely on tuition increases to finance our growth. By inspiring a dramatic increase in giving, the Campaign will provide funds to build on past successes and prepare for the challenges and triumphs of the future. Our entire community of trustees, alumni, faculty, parents, and friends has this opportunity to give a resounding vote of confidence in NYU and to provide generations to come with educational opportunities even more profound than today.

The seven-year Campaign began in 2001 and will result in funds that will be used to meet five primary goals. The Campaign will enable us to invest in our faculty, expanding their ranks while offering new training and opportunities to existing faculty. It will also provide financial assistance to a diverse and talented student body, ensuring that the quality education offered by NYU is affordable for all. Building our curriculum and programs is another important goal of the Campaign, which aims to develop innovative course work and ground-breaking research that cuts across disciplines. This can only be fully accomplished by meeting another goal: the enhancement of our physical campus. Funds from the Campaign will go to building new homes for our departments and renovating existing spaces. Finally, the Campaign aims to encourage alumni involvement and develop a base of alumni support comparable to that of other top-notch institutions.


One Future

When the Campaign for NYU was in its earliest planning stages, the University's deans, administrators, and trustees came together to explore the question, "What should NYU look like in 10 years?" Our dreams for the future are big, and the Campaign for NYU will make these dreams a reality.

The Campaign will support growth in five key spheres: faculty recruitment and retention, financial aid, curriculum and programs, our physical campus, and the Fund for NYU. Click on the interactive chart and links above to learn more about each of these areas.


Faculty of Arts and Science
College of Arts and Science
Graduate School of Arts and Science

Goal: $600 million

Arts and Science at NYU is the intellectual core of a great research and professional University. Arts and Science encompasses more than 600 faculty and more than 10,000 students, more than 200 fields of graduate study, and a rich liberal arts curriculum of 50-plus undergraduate majors, as well as unparalleled opportunities for research, preprofessional study and study abroad.

At the heart of The Campaign for NYU's vision for our University is the development of a uniquely outstanding arts and science school. Arts and Science has a long tradition of accomplishment at NYU. Our vision builds on this distinguished tradition, moving forward from a foundation of outstanding faculty, diverse and talented students, and academic resources that can only be found in New York City. Our ultimate success will be in making NYU one of the truly great arts and science schools in the world.

The strategy for doing so is clear although challenging: attract the very best faculty members, enable them to build programs that attract the best and most interesting students, and put our faculty and students together in top flight academic facilities.

In addition, Arts and Science will develop more profound links to New York City than other leading arts and science schools have with their locales, a more extensive international profile, and a deeper connection with professional education. The goal is to build distinctive greatness: faculty, students, and courses that are second to none in quality but that also have a signature NYU brand.

The resources sought in The Campaign for NYU stem directly from this ambitious academic vision. They include:

  • Endowed professorships, including senior professorships, distinguished global professorships, and joint professorships with professional schools.
  • Undergraduate scholarship funds and graduate fellowship funds.
  • Housing for faculty and graduate students.
  • Classroom and laboratory renovations, and upgrades to technology and lab equipment.

Our vision also includes enhanced academic facilities, with an emphasis on gifts significant enough to name the life sciences and genomics center, the general education center in the College of Arts and Science, the journalism center, the economics and politics building, the creative writing center, the languages and literature center, the philosophy building, and the ancient studies center.

The NYU School of Law is becoming the standard by which the great law schools of the 21st century measure themselves.

What makes NYU rare among law schools is a pluralism of strengths: excellence in scholarship, clinical education, and public service. Our school possesses an extraordinary faculty and superb student body, and enjoys a location at the heart of New York City's financial and artistic communities. All these elements create an environment in which students and faculty come together to address the most fundamental questions facing societies.

With a reputation for public service and a distinguished record of drawing visionary thinkers and practitioners to its campus, NYU School of Law trains the next generation of leaders across all areas of legal practice and scholarship. The school's Campaign priorities focus on sustaining and enhancing these distinguishing strengths, and include: loan forgiveness and summertime grants to support public interest, government and nonprofit law careers; professorships and faculty recruitment; the first-year Lawyering Program and our renowned clinical programs; the Hauser Global Law School Program, bringing leading law professors and the very best students from around the world to Washington Square; and a diverse array of research and programming through our institutes and centers.


Goal: $762 million

The mission of NYU School of Medicine is threefold: training physicians, searching for new knowledge, and caring for the sick. The school is at the forefront of the most important and challenging medical issues of our day. Heading our list of priorities are five major research initiatives: cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, neurosciences, genetics, and cancer. Each of these initiatives draws upon the expertise of several disciplines to translate laboratory discoveries into the newest and most effective treatments and cures for these major health problems. Supporting our basic research efforts is our Center for Biomedical Imaging, which uses the latest imaging technologies to shed new understanding on these biological processes.

The School of Medicine lies at the heart of NYU Medical Center, which embraces NYU Hospitals Center (Tisch Hospital and the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine) and several major affiliates, including Bellevue Hospital Center and the Veterans Administration Hospital. Building on the clinical strengths of the NYU Hospitals Center and its affiliates, the Medical Center recently launched an ambitious effort to advance our ability to care for children by expanding our pediatric programs and facilities.

The Campaign will support academic, research, and clinical initiatives, as well as two state-of-the-art facilities (the Joan and Joel Smilow Research Center and the NYU Clinical Cancer Center) that will ensure we keep pace with medical advances, attract the best students, and expand NIH research funding. The Campaign will also support a new clinical facility for the NYU Hospitals Center, enable us to equip it with advanced technologies, and provide for improvements to patient care facilities such as operating rooms and intensive care units.


Goal: $34 million

NYU College of Dentistry (NYUCD) partners with students to achieve academic excellence, provide the best oral health care, and engage in research and creative endeavors to improve the health of the highly diverse populations in New York City and the world. NYUCD is well on its way to becoming the dental institution with the greatest impact on the health of society through research and clinical practice, innovation, global education programs, and outreach to those in need.

NYUCD has created a new paradigm for dental education, one that synthesizes clinical and basic science, fosters critical thinking and lifelong learning skills, and inculcates a sense of social consciousness in its students. NYUCD is undeniably the national leader in education, research, and outreach in such pivotal areas as implant dentistry, oral cancer, and terrorism preparedness. Moreover, at the local level, it addresses health disparities and access to care so effectively that New York City has made both special appropriations and proclamations acknowledging the work of the college.

Through the Campaign, NYUCD will build on its leadership role by: renovating 506 treatment areas; constructing a student center, a graduate center for clinical excellence, a basic science center, and a faculty and staff development center; creating 10 professorships; establishing a terrorism preparedness fund; and developing international student and faculty exchange programs.


Goal: $90 million

The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development prepares students for careers that are essential to human development and the creation of a vital society. The pillars of education, wellness, the arts, and communication serve as the foundation for the Steinhardt School's academic programs, faculty research, and urban partnerships.

Steinhardt students participate in hands-on educational experiences, moving theory and research into practice and using practice to inform research and theory. Our students learn on campus and in our community, in schools and hospitals in all five boroughs of New York City and through fieldwork and internships in some of the world's foremost arts and media institutions.

Steinhardt departments offer a rich source of innovative problem-solving and groundbreaking scholarship on issues of national and international significance, from topics as diverse as early literacy to the role of technology and media in shaping our view of the world, from disease prevention and quality of life to the role of creativity in human development.

The Campaign will enable the Steinhardt School to attract top faculty, support research, and provide scholarships to deserving students. We will continue to ask questions about the role of education, wellness, the arts, and communication in our global community, preparing the next generation of leaders who will make a difference in the world.


Goal: $150 million

Located in the financial, media, and entertainment capital of the world, NYU Stern School of Business has experienced decades of unprecedented growth and achievement, and is regarded as one of the most distinguished and highly respected business schools and research centers in the nation. NYU Stern offers a broad portfolio of the foremost academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate level (MBA, Executive MBA, TRIUM Executive MBA, and PhD), all of them informed and enriched by the dynamism, energy, and resources of New York City.

Funds raised through the Campaign will allow the school to invest in vital initiatives including enhancing curriculum by leveraging its New York City connection; upgrading educational technology; and expanding student scholarships, faculty chairs, faculty housing, term professorships, and fellowships. The school also plans to expand existing highly successful programs and centers such as the Entertainment, Media & Technology Program, the Center for Law & Business, and the Berkley Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.

The challenge for Stern over the next decade, through the school's Campaign, is moving to the next level of excellence. Although we are already one of the world's preeminent business schools, we will advance forward, and not merely sustain an outstanding status quo. This will require significant investment in faculty, students, curriculum, and facilities.


Goal: $50 million

The Institute of Fine Arts is dedicated to graduate teaching and advanced research in the history of art, archaeology, curatorial studies, and conservation. A true jewel in the NYU crown, the Institute has trained a remarkable number of the world's most distinguished art history professors, curators, museum directors, and art conservators. The Institute is consistently ranked first in national evaluations of graduate programs in art history, and it is committed to reinforcing this leadership position.

From its privileged place on New York City's Museum Mile, the Institute aims to expand its reach into the international art world and provide a lively forum for public discussion of the visual arts. While building on its traditional strengths in European and Near Eastern art, the Institute also seeks to build its position in emerging fields such as East Asian and Latin American art. The Institute will maintain its commitment to object-based art history and archaeology (extending in particular its long-standing collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art), while ensuring that its curriculum provides the most advanced training in art history and conservation.

The Institute's rigorous educational mission and vibrant public presence will be enhanced by improvements to the instructional and library facilities, the creation of a state-of-the-art digital infrastructure for visual resources, significant investment in the distinguished faculty, and generous student fellowship support for study, travel, and research.


Goal: $55.6 million

For 70 years, the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) has led the way in providing lifelong learning to a broad diversity of the men and women who work and live in the New York City metropolitan area. Today's global economy is characterized by the need to adapt to constant change in technologies, market forces, and geopolitical realities. More than ever, success requires continuous, lifelong development of new information and skills.

SCPS is also an engine for creativity in New York City's key industries and professions. The school has strong symbiotic relationships with many of the city's most important sectors, from real estate and hospitality to entertainment, finance, publishing, and the arts. SCPS has pioneered undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs that educate professionals in these sectors, through a rigorous curriculum taught by full-time faculty and business leaders who combine in-class theory with the latest industry practices and techniques.

To expand SCPS's reputation for leadership and innovation, the school must respond to the changing needs of its wide range of students. Campaign plans include: developing new facilities for the Real Estate Institute and the Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports Management; building endowed scholarship funds for undergraduate and graduate students; developing professorships for SCPS's industry centers; improving technologies for the Center for Advanced Digital Applications; and building an endowment for Student Life programming.


Goal: $15.25 million

As a leading center for advanced research and graduate-level training in mathematics and computer science, the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences develops techniques that are critical to solving highly complex problems across science, engineering, medicine, business, and even the arts. In an age of unprecedented scientific change tied to high-speed computation, mathematical modeling, and massive data sets, Courant spearheads innovation through the development of more efficient, more powerful computation, modeling algorithms, and visualization. Courant faculty and researchers are the scientific minds behind many of today's cutting-edge technologies.

Since Richard Courant, an émigré from Germany, first arrived at NYU in 1934, the Institute has embraced the integration of pure and applied mathematics, and of theory and practice in computer science, making the school unique among peer institutions. By viewing mathematics and computer science not as isolated specialties but as living parts of a stream of science, Courant plays an active, interdisciplinary role at the University.

The Campaign will help Courant build on its distinctive strengths, including its faculty and students, by investing in endowed professorships, instructorships, and fellowships. The Institute also seeks support for improved building space, a faculty research fund, equipment for computational and experimental laboratories, and, in collaboration with Arts and Science, and the Medical and Dental Schools, the creation of a new Center for Computation in the Sciences and Society.


Goal: $50 million

How will we overcome the persistence of poverty? Address inequities in school financing? Manage rising costs and unequal access to high-quality health care? Ensure sustainable growth, both here and abroad? Rebuild our decaying public infrastructures? Create civil societies that unify people across differences of race, gender, age, and class? The Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service prepares the next generation of leaders who can address these questions and other issues of public importance in New York City, nationally, and around the world.

Through the school's Master of Public Administration (MPA) in Public and Non-Profit Management and Policy, MPA in Health Policy & Management, Master of Urban Planning, mid-career MS and PhD degrees, Wagner emphasizes multidisciplinary problem-solving and crossing boundaries between sectors and fields. These approaches are necessary in a world that is rapidly changing, globally interrelated, and complex. Wagner also emphasizes the integration of theory with hands-on internships, Capstone student projects, and public service-focused work and careers.

In May 2004, Wagner moved into the historic Puck Building, the school's first unified home in its 66-year history. In addition to seeking support for this renovation and relocation, Wagner's Campaign goals also include a national program to provide scholarships for full- and part-time students; endowed faculty chairs; and new initiatives to attract a range of people to public service careers.


Goal: $7.5 million

Recognizing the primary obligation of the social work profession (to advance the cause of social justice and promote the ideals of a humane society), the NYU School of Social Work is committed to building knowledge and educating professionals to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Established in 1953, the program in social work at NYU has a distinguished history of addressing the pressing problems of a complex urban environment and the needs of our most vulnerable citizens.

The school draws on the intellectual excitement of NYU, the energy of New York City, and the commitment and diversity of faculty, staff, students, and community partners. With core values of mutual respect, reflective learning, principled critical inquiry, participatory decision-making, and advocacy for the oppressed, the school attracts students and faculty devoted to student learning. Its engagement in influential interdisciplinary scholarship that has a direct impact on clinical practice and policy.

Campaign priorities include endowed professorships in areas relating to families and children, disabilities, mental health, community and economic development, and addictions; additional fellowships in the master's program; doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships for research, teaching, grants development, and management experience; and improved and expanded facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology to support multipurpose learning spaces for students and faculty.


Goal: $75 million

Developing the intellect as well as the imagination is the hallmark of Tisch School of the Arts, an extraordinary training ground for the world's most pioneering artists and scholars of the arts. The Tisch community has cultivated some of the most original voices and accomplished careers in acting, directing, dance, design, and writing for stage and screen, musical theatre, composition, photography, digital arts, film criticism, as well as scholarship on performance and film. The school's Center for Art and Public Policy provides an arena for developing a socially engaged sensibility. A wide range of international programs enable students to engage in advanced study in the arts in more than 20 countries.

Tisch has an unmatched record of innovation in establishing academic programs in exciting new fields, including first-in-the-nation departments of Cinema Studies, Performance Studies, and a program in Musical theatre Writing, as well as the first Interactive Telecommunications Program anchored within a school of the arts rather than a science or technology institution. New initiatives include the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music, in which recorded music will be considered an artistic discipline, and a master's program in the increasingly important field of Moving Image Archiving and Preservation.

Through the Campaign, Tisch plans to enhance its world-renowned programs with investments in: scholarships, to ensure the most promising students in the world can come to study at Tisch; faculty, to sustain and build the school's incomparable collection of working professionals and facilities that provide a state-of-the-art training environment; as well as innovative outreach, courses, and programs as supported by the Dean's Fund for Special Projects.

Goal: $45 million

Transcending boundaries of schools and disciplines, NYU's Division of Libraries lies at the heart of the University's intellectual community. It is the libraries' mission to sustain NYU's extraordinary learning environment while meeting the growing demand for more scholarly resources in a variety of new formats. The ways that knowledge is created, transmitted, and preserved are rapidly evolving, and the NYU Libraries will be a leader in meeting these challenges.

Central to the vision for the libraries' future, and the Campaign we are embarking on, is the renovation of the flagship Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, an impressive, multidisciplinary, multimedia research facility, housing more than 3.3 million volumes and visited daily by more than 6,000 students, faculty members, and other researchers. The collections range from a cuneiform tablet to digital data, from 18th-century manuscripts to video and sound recordings. Bobst Library will be a facility shaped to the work of the 21st century's scholars.

Through the Campaign, the Division of Libraries also aims to build endowments for our distinctive special collections in social history, American and British literature, and the New York avant-garde, collections that draw scholars who depend on these primary resources for new discovery. NYU Libraries will also develop initiatives for our innovative electronic library to broaden access to our rich electronic holdings: text, images, and multimedia resources.


Investing in Faculty
Goal: $750 million

Creating the best possible faculty is a top priority for the Campaign. As a result of the Campaign, we will enjoy the largest expansion of our faculty in the history of NYU. Contributions will help attract the best scholars and teachers in the world, develop current junior faculty, and provide necessary faculty housing.

Funds will also improve the faculty to student ratio across the campus, so both faculty and students can enjoy the full NYU experience. The Campaign will endow new chairs and establish new positions for visiting professors, artists, and writers in residence. It will sponsor new partnerships with businesses, industries, government agencies, and non-profits to capitalize on our unique location in the heart of New York City.

The Campaign will help NYU inspire future generations of students and make an impact at NYU in New York City and around the world.

Providing Financial Assistance for a Diverse & Talented Student Body
Goal: $650 million

Students are the top priority at NYU and that's why contributions to the Campaign for NYU support a host of scholarships and initiatives designed to help students get the education they deserve. We have a tradition of providing a top-quality education to a diverse range of accomplished and deserving students from all economic backgrounds, from the city's newest immigrants to New York natives. Today 32% of NYU students are from minority backgrounds, 10% are from abroad, and 59% are women.

NYU provides financial assistance to more than two-thirds of our student body – more than $160 million per year. The Campaign will provide the funds necessary to keep our commitment to these students while offering new scholarships to reach even more. It will also seek to provide more fellowships for graduate students and to guarantee that financial aid is available to students in need of emergency support.

Together we can ensure that the top-quality education available at NYU remains affordable for all our talented students. Giving to the Campaign is an investment in the future of NYU, New York City, and the world at large.

Building Our Curriculum and Programs
Goal: $500 million

Knowledge is power, and the way our world learns and creates knowledge is rapidly changing. The Campaign is committed to supporting innovative course work and ground-breaking research programs. The education of the future is one that bridges the gaps between disciplines with enhanced curriculum. It relies on field-based programs and hands-on experiences that prepare students for work, research, and life in the real world. For this reason, funds from the Campaign will create new centers of study and recognize NYU's most powerful asset: New York City.

The Campaign will seek to endow departments and centers of excellence in which NYU faculty and students focus on vital subject areas that cut across fields and schools. Religion, genomics, playwriting, global law, and cancer research are just a few of the areas of study that have been advanced by recent visionary gifts. Through the Campaign, NYU will enhance these and other key areas, support the research of specific professors, and leave an educational legacy for generations to come.

>>back to graph


Enhancing Our Physical Campus
Goal: $500 million

Space is always a challenge in a world-class city like New York. Contributions to the Campaign will be dedicated to creating spaces that foster community as well as an improved learning experience. From finding a new home for the life sciences to renovating space for the creative writing department, the Campaign will reach across the University to improve the way students live and learn.

A gift to the Campaign is an investment in reconfigured laboratories and new equipment to improve our science departments. Through the Campaign we will construct new buildings, renovate our libraries and performance spaces, and improve residences for both students and faculty. The Campaign offers numerous naming opportunities across campus in which your commitments can make a tangible impact on our community. Support for the Campaign will enable us to invest in the building and technology that will shape the teaching, learning, and living essential to our vibrant community.

The Fund for NYU: Increasing Alumni Participation
Goal: $100 million

Although NYU is a top academic performer, it still lags far behind its peer institutions when it comes to the percentage of alumni who make annual fund gifts. Increasing annual giving is one of the crucial goals of the Campaign as this money provides the University with immediate cash resources that can be applied to new ideas and initiatives as they emerge.

Participation in annual giving at all levels is your chance to join a community of thousands of alumni, parents, and friends who make their vote of confidence in NYU each year. Your gift will have an exponential impact. An annual gift at the President's Council level of $5,000 is equivalent to the annual income from a $100,000 endowment fund. Your commitment will also set an example for alumni who come after you, helping build a tradition of alumni support and leaving a legacy of life-changing education for future generations of NYU students.

>>back to One Future



The mission of the College of Nursing, as an integral part of a research-one private university "in the public service," is to generate new knowledge and educate future nursing professionals who, in turn, will exemplify the highest standards of excellence in research, education and practice for a global society. The vision for the NYU Nursing enterprise is continuous progress in scholarly excellence and innovations that advance humane,quality health care for all people. We are living that mission!

As of September 2005, we are especially proud of our new and historic designation as the College of Nursing within the College of Dentistry at NYU. Creative synergies are what our University has always been about, and this new status will enable us to practice in innovative, interdisciplinary ways that have heretofore been unconsidered. Dean Michael Alfano of the College of Dentistry has promoted this new partnership, and we are indebted to him for his leadership and vision. Our partnerships with the NYU Medical Center and other premier urban healthcare facilities provide us with a rich variety of outstanding clinical experiences.

Our faculty practices continue to thrive, and we always look for new ways to partner for the benefit of those in need of care, which ultimately provides a unique and productive educational setting for our students. As a research enterprise, we strive to generate new knowledge that can reduce health disparities in vulnerable populations. Our international initiatives are key to a global health perspective. NYU Nursing is a World Health Organization designated Center for the Pan American Health Organization.

Our students are tomorrow's nursing leaders and our efforts to provide superior leaders have never been more important in American health care than they are today. There is a critical nursing shortage, which is threatening the quality of care across the nation. Our challenges are many. The public needs to know why one should choose nursing as a career, and the importance of quality nursing education. The College of Nursing at NYU is ready to meet these challenges.
